i just switched to linux because of a few factors.
the price for vista is crazy and i am getting tired of spending several hundred bucks every few years. i bought win95,win98, winme what a joke and then xp at that will be my last purchase of windows
the hardware you will need to run vista are too high for me. i mean you will need to build a beast to run it fast. since i switched to linux my computer runs much faster.
no spyware and no viruses for now atleast is really nice
FREE SOFTWARE!!! and good software i had no idea how good it was until i tried some of them.
i’ve been using ubuntu and has very good support in there forums and i think very user friendly.
